I wonder how mommy found such a built plastic surgeon?

I think the book is a good idea, and indeed it can be used as a medium to inform kids about other plastic surgeries that some children have to undergo.

What a load of manure. Mommy looked pretty good to start with...does this book teach kids that looking fit and healthy isn't good enough, that you should risk your life to be "a prettier mommy"?

Bleck. Double bleck.

Edited to add...remind, the load of manure comment wasn't aimed at you! I just read my post and to be sure, I meant the book was a crock.

I never looked at the pictures, as I have dial up and it takes forever. However, I was basing my opinion on many women I know who have severe problems with tummy flaps after having children, or even 1 child. Or others whose breasts just became flaps of skin hanging after child birth and nursing.

They have esteem issues, relationship issues, physical discomfort and skin problems because of it. And I feel that they have every right to try to bring their bodies back to, somewhat the way they were, prior to child birth, if they choose.

Not all women's skin is of similar elasticity and it tears making in some cases 3-4" wide stretch marks all over the tummy.
